20th & 6th Ave [NE Corner] (September 3, 2012)

Ironically, in 1982, Peter Gatien bought this old church on 20th Street and 6th Avenue (built in 1846 as the Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion) from the Odyssey House, a drug rehabilitation center. Gatien then created The Limelight, one of New York City's most infamous nightclubs. The Limelight was a haven for techno, goth, and industrial music, as well as a free-for-all for recreational drug use. The party started unraveling in 1996, when Club Kid Michael Alig killed and dismembered a drug dealer at the club. (See the Macaulay Culkin movie, Party Monster). Since 2010, the building has been home to the Limelight Marketplace, a lame shopping mall. And, randomly, we found some contestants from Vietnam's Next Top Model.                             CLICK TO ENLARGE
